Grl, 13, is tp txtr

A 13-year-old girl who sends an average of 8,000 text messages a month has been crowned the US texting champion.

Morgan Pozgar says she sends about 260 texts a day – about one every five minutes – to her friends.

She clinched the title with a quickfire error-free rendition of ‘Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious. If you say it loud enough you’ll always sound precocious’.

The teenager, from Claysburg, Pennsylvania, was awarded the top prize of £12,500 at the contest in New York after beating 250 competitors from across the country.

In the semi-final Morgan beat Michael ‘Cheeser’ Nguyen, a 23-year-old engineer from Pennsylvania, who said: “I just wasn’t fast enough. I just got beaten by a teenage girl, but you know.”

In the tense final, Morgan at first seemed to have been beaten by 21-year-old Eli Tirosh, who put down her mobile phone first, only for the judges to rule that she had made a typing error.

The teenager, who pays £5 a month for unlimited texts on her phone, plans to spend her prize money shopping in Manhattan.
